Tiny Mix Tapes

Entrañas is the unnameable us, the fireworks and the semi-automatics. It seeks uncovering and discovers trauma. It is elegy and bruise, sound and echo. It screams in the face of silence.


It is darker than Mutant; it’s heavier and more unrelenting. 

Resident Advisor

Following two uneven albums for Mute, Ghersi returns to the mixtape format with Entrañas, which features some of his most arresting and unsettling work since &&&&&.

Consequence of Sound

Arca’s music can often come off as obtrusive, cerebral sounds with no clear entry point. Opposed to the restraint present in parts of Xen and Mutant, Entrañas is purely visceral, constantly obliterating conventions.

Arca has proven on this project that he'll only get better with every release. Looking back on his mixtape &&&&&&, it's so impressive to see how much his sounds have improved since then. It's not that he's going to run out of ideas, it's that his sound will get more organic, unique, and real. Even if he did continue to use the same sound, it's such a distinct and specific sound to him that it doesn't really matter. He'll still be the only Arca out there, being the only ... read more
